initially come out high. their tax subsidies available. let me play for you what jay carney said this morning to your point about young people and whether they'll sign up. >> there's a silver lining here when it comes to young people an young people are important to this working. it was always the case, no matter how good the website was going to be, that young americans were going to be the last group to sign up. i don't know about you in college or everything i did when i was young as last minute. >> well, i'm with jay carney on that one to the extent that i was a procrastinator and never wrote my paper until the last paper. does he have a point, though, we don't know right now that the accusations you're making are speculative? >> here's what we know, chris. and i think we can find common ground here. we know that we were promised that this website would be working great and it's not and it is a total mess. >> and the white house would concede that. >> we know that the president promised -- okay, fine. they keep saying and they keep saying. we know that the president promised
careful the tense is here is right. jay carney's announcement we don't do it now, we didn't do it before. english teachers across america are smiling at that lesson. they never said we will never do it again or never did it in the past. >> i want to switch gears to obama care. the white house has been facing a lot of criticism over the roll out and the problems they are seeing. what are the consequences if they don't get this fixed soon. >> they have three or four weeks. you can't ask american people to do something they can't do. you are in this case and i know those bites you were playing earlier, the president saying you won't have to lose your insurance, you don't want to hand your enemies sound bites that they will beat you over the head later. get it cleaned up in the next couple of weeks. >> do you think that's the time we're talking about weeks not months? >> it's a few weeks. the president is saying by the end of move to. if they can pull that off probably we'll judge this plan on whether it provides better health care for americans and not the commuter glitches. boy, if it goes
've heard from carney briefly today, jay carney here. but the relationship the president has particularly with angela merkel, any kind of deal making? >> it makes it difficult and it certainly would give germany leverage to some degree in some of these discussions because the u.s. is in a position where it was caught doing something it had not previously acknowledged it was doing. how this ultimately plays out is a little difficult. we're still in early days since the revelations and sometimes these things do calm down a little bit. however, as we've seen with the snowden revelations they seem to gain momentum over time. what will be the main challenge for the obama administration is how to sort of restore this trust that germany and some of the other european leaders have talked about because they still do need germany to work with them on lots of key national security and economic issues. >> siobhan gorman, thank you very much. intriguing report. >>> developing as well right now, we're learning that a british man is under arrest in england charged with hacking into u.s. government compu
: right. and white house press secretary jay carney emphasized you're going to hear the president continue to talk about the economy while they try to troubleshoot given this rocky rollout of the president's health care website. i think, tamron, in terms of what you're seeing in those numbers that you just mapped out in our latest nbc news/"wall street journal" poll, it really shows an accumulation of setbacks for this administration. everything from syria to questions over the nsa and of course the latest over the health care rollout. what's interesting, though, if you look at how the nation is viewing health care specifically, that hasn't changed all that much, tamron. our poll shows that 37% see the law as a good idea versus 47% who see it as a bad idea. that is down slightly from the 38% who saw it as a good idea and 43% who saw it as a bad idea in the previous poll. now, i think the administration has time to turn some of the president's approval rating numbers around. that's going to depend on this website working by the end of november, as the administration has promised. and also,
. >> today in the white house press briefing room, jay carney had to explain the president's poetry in prose. >> the president said, a very simple statement, using the present tense. if you like the plan that you have, you can keep it. period. >> again. >> if you like the plan you had in 2009. >> i understand what you are saying. i can simply say that -- that was consistent with what the president had been saying since prior to the passage of the affordable care act. it described. he was describing what was written into the law which is that we would, the law would grandfather in those who had insurance and liked it and wanted to keep it even once the affordable care act was implemented. and i understand that yeah, there is more to that story. because of choices that insurance companies made to change the plans that individuals might have had. >> also, today, in a house ways and means committee hearing, republican chairman, dave camp asked head of center for medicare and medicaid services about this all. up ai ju >> i want to mention a letter i received from my district. and this man wrote m
. over the past couple of days, some of the people involved david axelrod, jay carney suggested that was never a consideration. was this a big deal or not a big deal? >> a big deal in the following sense. have you a presidency at the low point, after the last round of budget negotiations in 2011. the president's poll numbers are down. he's seen as weak. bill dal y, white house chief of staff at the time, look, we have to consider, as he said the other day, we have to consider every option. one thing to look at, do the due diligence, lets test it, lets see how obama clinton does compared to obama/biden. now, when the results came back it showed it didn't help that much and didn't go forward. but it is sort of extraordinary. if you think about the white house chief of staff, the top advisers. it was a very small group that knew about this david plouffe, axelrod, the president's pollster. for that group of people to say, look, we need to take a look at this, even though they knew it was a long shot and there would be a downside. it was certainly part of the history of this administ
video bombing jay carney. so there he was, morning bo. and that's something you can't make up. it is something that can make you smile going into the weekend. thanks for watching. i'm al sharpton. "hardball" starts right now. >>> the hate obama party. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this. this hatred of the president has sunk deeper and deeper into the republican blood stream. to be a member of the gop in november 2013 is to be a member of the h.o.p., the hate obama party. you must not only oppose him, but everything with his name on it. you must not only hate the president's health care plan, you must support any work of sabotage. the goal is to blow up the program. whether by denying people information, refusing to have your state participate, talking the young people into how to avoid accountability. this is what the enemies have been doing since they first learned of his election just as the southern states began moving towards secession. well, tonight the hate obama party and all its anger and misery
% of individuals would not be able to keep their policies. yesterday white house press secretary jay carney tried to clarify the law and those past remarks from the president. >> what everybody said all along there will be changes brought about by the affordable care act to provide minimum standard of coverage. so it's true that there are existing health care plans on the individual market that don't meet those minimum standards and, therefore, do not qualify for the are affordable care act. >> lisa myers will be on "morning joe" at the top of the hour at 6:00 a.m. some news outside of d.c. to talk about. a federal judge blocked a key part of a texas law toughening access to abortions one day before the law was set to take effect. the judge threw out the portion that required doctors who perform the procedures to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals 30 miles or less away. critics say it would have forced 1/3 of the state's clinics to shut down. wendy davis filibustered the legislation over the sum per the bill ultimately passed and davis is now running for governor against attorney gener
this is a -- it was a very difficult period politically. >> here's jay carney responding to the report in the book coming out tuesday. >> it's important to know that campaigns and pollsters as part of campaigns test a lot of things. what i can tell you without a doubt is that the president never considered that and had anyone brought that idea to him, he would have laughed it out of the room. joe biden has been an asset to this president in two campaigns and throughout five years of this administration. >> well, chris cillizza is an msnbc contributor. and michael scherer for "time" magazine. chris, i want you to first get in on this. there's one way to play it down. i guess that's what bill daly was doing. not denying it. the key is he accepted the fact of this book that there was a set of focus groups taken, there was money spent to try to decide whether to dump the vice president who was close to bill daly personally and close to the president. they were that worried that they conducted all this research to dump him. and then they decided after getting the research, not deciding ahead of time we love this
the press," david gregory, white house press secretary, jay carney, leigh gallagher and later, celebrity chef rocco dispirito. >> are you going to put on an apron and cook? >> yeah, i'm going to put on an apron and say mmm delicious. top stories from the politico playbook. bill karins is up now. >> as far as my forecast goes for today, if you are going to be traveling in the northeast, the airports are going to be a big issue especially this morning. we have strong thunderstorms with high winds that are going to blow through the big cities. as far as right now, they are located in central pennsylvania on interstate 81. they are going to head into the big city. not even lightning with the storm. it's a strong line of storms with winds gusting up to 60 miles per hour. winds are 36 in philly. 39 in buffalo. a windy day. it's very warm. feels like the spring feel with the humidity. when the front goes through, bad weather with it. you don't want to be under big trees with the winds gusting to 40 to 50 miles per hour. the rain is early today in the east. it's when the worst airport delays wil
officials before he spoke in the park. jay carney gave a somewhat tortured response to a simple question. does the president support barbara buono. >> i haven't done asked that question in a while. i will have to get back to you. i think he met with her in new jersey earlier this year. i don't have updates on that. he supports her, but i honestly -- sorry. >> the candidate for governor, rodney dangerfield. i'm sure you are saying this is frustrating. this is a governor running for higher office. he had ethical clouds surrounding him and it's something we need to discuss. there is no one more enamored with chris christie than himself. the fact is that there serious issues and if women knew and that's what we were trying to get through with that special election that this governor scheduled for u.s. senate and our election on the fifth, people are focusing on it. people say wait a minute, this guy is anti-choice, anti-marriage equality and anti-planned parenthood and anti-pay equity. he is aligned with the tea party with social values. >> it is hard for a large state like new jersey if you
the things you can do around the 14th amendment. i think he's put out statements through jay carney that he would never go that far. that he's been very careful in walking the line that has been walked before in terms of presidential power and opportunities and options. >> well, that may be the case. but the government, in general, the administration and the directives that come down from, by tone or other avenues has been to expand government powers and to take, take some leeway here and there with certain, like for example the irs investigations of tea party people. i mean, i think we are all aware that there's more government overreach than we've experienced before in our personal lives. and i think that's what appeals to ted cruz's, to his constituents. now some of what he -- >> yes, but those people work at -- but kathleen, we're talking about the president here. did he appoint those people at irs or did w? >> apparently the president has nothing to do with anything. >> no. >> he pleads ignorance on everything that comes along in the news these days. >> wasn't that a holdover person? y
grandfathered in. >> that was white house press secretary jay carney a few moments ago. tomorrow health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius testifies before the house energy and commerce committee. it will be the first time she'll field questions. and joining me now live, senior political editor, mark murray, let's talk about in nbc report and the information we know and confirmation from sten y hoyer that you have individuals that will receive cancellation letters and won't keep their plan. those who bought individual health insurance make up a sliver of the overall market and the law now gives these people more substantial insurance and protections than they have before. that is the fact there but you still have individuals who have gone on the website and see in some cases their premium go up and make it more in return for that but it's not going down well, at least at this point. >> well, it all has to do with tradeoffs under this law and reform. when you look at the toe talty of the affordable care act, the people with preexisting conditions and people who have very expe
house press secretary, jay carney was asked during his daily briefing. here's what he had to say. take a listen. >> the president has been briefed on the incident at los angeles international airport. by alyssa mass extra monaco, chief of staff, and he will be updated. at this point the lead is the lapd, but we're obviously at the federal level in touch with law enforcement officials on the ground, and will -- the president will be updated as the afternoon progresses. >> now, at this point in time, there appears there are no plans for the president to speak about this. president obama currently meeting with iraq's prime minister, norelle maliki, this was supposed to be the president's health care website, but, of course, renewed discussion about the issue of guns and gun violence as this white house continues to monitor the situation at l.a.x. back to you. >> all right, kristen, thank you very much. the shooting at l.a.x. is, of course, affecting air travel everywhere else. that is, perhaps, the least of the issues with one person dead and several injured. but that is something that a
on this issue of credibility and trustworthy. jay carney punted this question over the insurance market and said, the problem, which has always been the problem, insurance companies in that wild, wild west of the insurance market could arbitrarily cancel, change, downgrade those plans at any time and many of them have over the last several years. that's true. but it's not like the white house didn't know. >> by the way, i don't recall that being the applause line in the 500 speeches i had to sit through. i mean, this is clearly they were either misleading or weren't quite aware of it. i don't know what the heck it was. the thing i find incredibly striking here, the president keeps telling us how angry he is. he hasn't told us he screwed up. at some point down the line people are going to want to hear why he didn't oversee the system more. >> if he does that, he can really only do that once this thing is really working well which could be months and months from now. >> nor do i think it makes good sense or politics. this president is not running for re-election. what he does have to do is protect
authority there. >> jay carney was asked the question whether the president would consider an executive order barring lgbt workplace discrimination if the legislation was unable to be secured in the house and senate. apparently he did not directly answer that question. >> he leaves the door open in an interesting way. >> thanks, take care. >> coming up, new comments from attorney general eric holder about security in our nation's airports right in time for the holidays after friday's deadly shooting at lax. plus, questions over whether lax and other airports are secure enough. then a disturbing story that's been trending all weekend long. hard to believe but true, a pregnant woman was attacked while talking to her soldier husband overfacetime while he was deployed overseas. he watched this on face time. what police say led to this horrific crime and we'll have an update on her and the baby. >>> and join our conversation on twitter, at tamronhall and my team at newsnation. peace of mind is important when you're running a business. century link provides reliable it services like multi-lay
keeping their insurance. nicole wallace laid into spokesman jay carney over it. i want to play a small portion. >> the public believes your boss, and you know as well as i do when the public stops believing your boss, he is rendered impotent. so how do you make the public believe your boss when the two things that were said to reassure people, that they could cope their health plans and they could keep their doctors, turn out to be not true? >> so, governor, ezra klein puts this in perspective for us, a fascinating blame game with the problems. you can see where the arrows are pointing. so is the test of the gop and the sabotage and blame game going to be born out for democrats come 2014? >> well, that depends. i think right now the odds are with the democrats. i think the republicans have essentially eliminated their brand as a serious contention in american politics. not to say they're going to go away, they're not. but nobody believes anything they say. the problem is we've got to deliver this. it has entirely to do with democrats. the republicans are irrelevant to this debate. they
. >> jay carney at the briefing effectively said -- >> there are going to be changes brought about by the affordable care act to create minimum standards. >> they can't be dropped for a richer package of benefits. >> maternity care, mental health services. >> this is government-run health care. >> i'll never stop fighting to help more hard-working americans know the economic security of health care. ♪ >> don't you worry. we will get to health care momentarily. but it is a very busy day in the capitol with a double dose of major congressional hearings, and challenges on twin fronts for the president. issue number one. oversight of the nsa. you are looking live right now at the house intelligence committee holding a hearing on that very issue. witnesses include the director of national intelligence, james clapper, who sounded a wri note on the outrage over u.s. international spy efforts. >> i have to say, chairman rodgers, some of this reminds me a lot of the classic movie "kasa blanka," my god, there is gambling going on here. the same thing. >> indeed it is. the president faces a
by white house press secretary jay carney today as alleged proof that the president is seizing health care from honest americans. take a listen to this. >> there are going to be changes brought about by the affordable care act to create minimum standards. maternity care is covered, prevent active services are comfort, mental health services are covered. the insurance policy you buy doesn't have an annual limit or lifetime limit. so it's true that there are existing health care plans on the individual market that don't meet those minimum standards, and therefore, do not qualify for the affordable care act. >> so people won't be able to be ripped off by substandard plans. what a pit. but is this the line of -- is this line of attack proof that the website will be fixed and republicans then will really have to move on? >> not only do they realize that. let's take a step back and see who they put ahead now to fix this -- the computer glitch. it's jeff zients. jeff zients headed up the advisory board, a health care company that pulled together best practices in the health care industry. so he k
hope he'll do better than jay carney did. he reformulated, you can like your plan if under the following exceptions and x, y and z. the truth is, he was talking about a small sliver, those on the individual market, as opposed to the corporate market, or rather the other way around. it's going to be hard for him to make that face and it's not going to fit on a bumper sticker. >> yeah, and goes to the complexity of a market that everyone knows was not perfect to begin with. that's something krystal was speaking about in some depth yesterday. the notion that most people are on their employer based coverage. and those are the people he was talking to, make some sense. it's been cloudeded -- definitely clouded, i think, disingenuously in the sebelius exchange today. what is she going to do when they know exactly under the law what happened to those folks. in fact, that was the whole discussion in congress, as well. about all of their employees. dana, thanks for spending time with us this hour on the speech. >> my pleasure. >> all right. i think that does it for us. we're going t
house admits no one is satisfied with the rollout, jay carney reiterated with palpable frustration they're working 24/7 to get the website and all of the rest up to par. >> in the meantime, we're, you know, busting rocks every day to fix the website. so that it's up and running at a standard that's acceptable for the vast majority of americans by the end of the month. >> four weeks to go, and you can tell, they know that the clock is ticking. joining me is congressman jerrold nadler, democrat of new york. and congressman, you know, do you get the sense that the problems with the website have now completely obscured the central point, which is that the benefits that the affordable care act potentially offers to people? >> no, i don't think they have completely obscured it. i think they have taken the place in the press for a little time. but again, this was a major, major social change, the most major change since medicare and medicaid 35 years ago. and in two years, no one is going to remember this if the law works. >> right. >> if most people get insurance, which they will, that's chea
, the white house yesterday, jay carney effectively said yes there are some plans that don't meet the minimum standard of the affordable care act. that is, in fact, true. they would say though our plan allows you to get benefits. yes maybe your premium goes up, your deductible goes up but you have more benefits including for mental health. what did the white house tell you >> they basically made the same point. they said look anyone who is losing their insurance is losing their insurance because it doesn't meet our standards. and that this new policy will give people more protection, they can't be dropped because they get sick, they by and large will have a richer package of benefits. the problem is a lot of the folks we talked to who have received these notices first were shocked that they got them because they thought the president had told them they wouldn't but also they didn't like the government telling them what they had to buy. and they in some cases were very happy with the more bear bones policy that they thought met their needs, and cost them less. now there was one individual who
press sect jay carney called the figures cherry picked leaks by republicans and not official numbers. the administration says the website's glitches are making it tough to get actual totals and they are lowering expectations for the initial enrollment report. expected in a few weeks. we told new advance that there would be low enrollment figures initially. >> with the white house in damage control mode, some are wondering if mr. obama is facing a second term curse like ronald reagan who was plagued by the iran-contra affair or bill clinton who was embroiled in the monika lewinsky scandal. >> there is something to be said about the historical antecedents here. it's hard to be president and more difficult to be president in this day and age where controlling your message on any given day is virtually impossible. >> now, dave kemp, charp of the house ways and means committee, has written a letter to cms, one of the agencies in charge of the website asking for as much information as possible about those enrollment figures. the obama administration has called in some of the biggest names
i. white house secretary jay carney said americans should look to the insurers for an explanation. >> part two. >> basically, throw you off that plan telling you after a year or two that it was changing and said, here's your new option because your plan has changed, that that new plan is grandfathered in, how can that be? you can't grandfather a plan in 2010 na didn't come into existence in 2012 or 2011. it's not about fault t. insurers are in the leadup to these marketplaces are doing what they had always done. >> all right, the most heated exchange came when a democratic congressman took issue with republicans that suggesting they've offered an alternative to obama care. take a look. >> we lost the policy fight and what did we do? we went back to our districts and we told our seniors although we voted no, we personally believe and we'll work with the bush administration to make it work. that's what we did and how many of you stood up to do that? none. zero. zero. >> well, will the gentleman yield? >> yes, i will. >> i will just tell you. >> where are you? >> right here. you aske
consideration? >> yes. >> david, white house spokesman jay carney asked yesterday if president obama knew about any potential v.p. swaps, listen to this -- >> you're saying he was aware of this or was not -- >> i think if you ask the people who were more directly running the campaign that question, they might have an answer. i'm not aware that he was aware of it. >> in those conversations about kicking biden off the ticket here, is it possible the president may not have been aware of those discussions happening around him? >> i think chris is right in what she said. i covered the campaign. there were moments where the president seemed to have losst some of the momentum he had four years ago. hillary clinton was riding high in the polls as secretary of state. there was public talk among pundits and so on. i'm sure the campaign were thinking about every potential option. whether it reached the level of president obama or was serious, it looks unlikely. david plouffe is adamant about that. i think this is a lot of talk. biden's role in this white house has been periodically questioned about how se
